I am Afzal Multani WordPress Full Stack Engineer @multidots, I’m passionate about programming (particularly web-based) and love to design and built websites from scratch. I’ve been developing with WordPress and contributing to the community since 2016. Proudly contribute in Core Contribution, Meta Contribution, Translation Contribution Theme Reviewer, Plugin Developer, Theme Developer and GTE in Gujarati.
I love WordPress and the community that’s developed around it. Why? WordPress and its community truly made me appreciate the power of open source software and the generosity of the open source spirit.
What is it then that makes a WordPress developer? “I think” or “In my opinion” or “From my point of view”
“A WordPress developer is one who can make custom plugins and modules for WordPress. WordPress designer (a true one) is able to develop a theme around WordPress. A WordPress expert is someone who is able to do all of it, probably not as well as the specialized listings I previously mentioned and can help you get the end product done by knowing the right plugins and themes for the project”
“A WP expert is someone that understands WP and is familiar with WP core functions and how the entire thing works. Yes, a WP expert is also a PHP developer, but not every PHP developer intimately familiar with WP”
“In my opinion, a WordPress Developer is someone that works for WordPress and it is part of the WordPress project. In other words, very few people”
“Wordpress Developer is not someone that can create a WordPress Plugin because anyone that is a PHP Developer can do that. It’s better to say: PHP Developer or PHP Programmer specialized in WordPress Plugins”
“A top-tier WP developer is also one who contributes to the codex”
